Whiskerino 2009


could teach Damnweather a thing or two!

Goodbye to you all. My life will probably resemble this for awhile, so I'm not sure how badly I'm going to miss W'rino for the time.

A big thank you to Mackle for all his help and support. I started doing this in 2005, and it's been a pretty fun ride. I'm glad to have made a couple friends here, and been able to meet so many great guys at the throwdown. You can see my info on the spreadsheet; feel free to add whatever you'd like.

:) My daughter has those same pajamas. She's probably crying because she doesn't want you to shave your beard. "Please daddy, PLEASE...don't shame yourself by shaving."

She looks how I feel (except for the adorable part).

It's been a pleasure to share this experience with you and to hang out with you at the Throwdown. One of my favorite memories from that trip was the serious conversation we had about fatherhood minutes after you one the chugging contest.

Take care and congrats on being an awesome dad. She's a beautiful little girl.

It's been a blast seeing the photos, exchanging comments, and meeting you in person. Keep rockin' the Lincoln. I've worn that style many times, and like it for its eccentricity. Take care.
